. this is one of the great frustrations that chris matthews had and ed and the entire panel at msnbc. they were so angry and i think for good reason because there were basic -- >> joe, this is an important question. it's not just the analysts, it's the average american had the answers for that. clearly, this was not like chris matthews knew and he didn't know. every person i talked to said, well, why didn't he say this? he could not ha he couldn't not have the answers. >> hold on. this isn't a debate or chris or ed. this is a debate to win the election. i'm sorry, it may have been disappointing, but there was something else going on. you have the jobs numbers coming out at 8:30 this morning in just a couple of hours. you have a lot of other things at play, and he's in a certain position in this race. there must have been, as flummoxing as it was to watch, a strategy. what was it? >> i haven't said this for a very long time. i'll say it again, though. debates are where you show your depth of understanding about politics. i've seen 1,000 debates. i've participated in, you know, scores of debates.

. stop and say that again because chris matthews said it last night, that maybe he's heard "hail to the chief" one too many times. say that again. >> no one has spoken to him that way -- no one has tried to interrupt him in four years. and i think it showed. >> you're surrounded as president by yes-men and totis. that's what happens. everyone agrees with you. >> that's a little harsh. >> but it's just -- >> i don't think that's the case. >> everyone wants to agree with the president. no one ever says to the president, you know, it's hard to say to the president you're wrong, sir, no one gets in your face, no one interrupts you, no one tries to tell the ref to control the room. everyone is always differential. that's the power of the presidency. he hasn't had an argument since he met john mccain in the third debate in 2008. a real argument of this kind. where you're fighting for time. you're fighting for control of n anything the president ever h to do. >> on a human level -- >> any president. >> that's a great point. any president, any governor, any senator, you're almost indigna

for being with us today and all week. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> 7.8% jobless number. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with the good news on the unemployment front, getting the jobless number down to 7.8% a month before the election could be the upbeat news to give this president the kind of big-time bounce he needs. since the campaign began we've known the power of the unemployment figure. now we have the number itself. plus, the good news about the last two months, it's clear that the economy created more jobs than previously estimated. there are some people out there who don't like this number, don't like it at all, and leading the band is the legender ceo of general electric, jack welch, who joins us right now. jack, you made a lot of news today. here is the tweet you put out this morning. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. and i'm just wondering, i understand the way it works is the president gets a heads-up on the unemployment number 4:00 the day be

a different reception when he tried to peddle his theory to my colleague chris matthews on this network. >> i have no evidence to prove that. i just raised the question. >> no you didn't. you said these chicago guys will do anything. >> yeah. >> so they changed the numbers. do you want to take this back? >> no i don't want to take it back. >> there is a serious assertion there was corruption here, infiltration or getting to -- it's not funny, jack. you're talking about the president of the united states playing with the bureau of statistics numbers. this is nixon stuff. do you want to take back the charge that there was corruption here? >> i don't want to take back one word in that tweet. >> so let's be clear about where we stand on the conspiracy to re-elect barack obama. from everything we've been told by the right wingers, here is who was involved. the bureau of labor statistics which has never been influenced by any white house. somehow, somehow they manipulated the numbers. but they only manipulated the numbers for the month of september instead of manipulating them for three years. okay

, so change the numbers. when pressed by chris matthews, he wouldn't take it back. >> i have no evidence to prove that. i just raised the question. >> did you talk to the economists or any of the people in the accounting world that understood how the numbers were put together before you accuse the chicago guys of changing the numbers? >> it seems like a coincidence, that one month before the election they would end up at 7.8. >> reporter: the numbers are crunched by the economists and the independent bureau of labor statistics, civil services, not employees. >> these are skilled people working at the als. >> reporter: a prominent romney supporter agrees. >> there was no way they were manipulated for political purposes. the people that put it together were civil servants, the experts in the area. the process was one of integrity. >> reporter: while some see it as a boost, romney is trying to neutralize the attack, over his comments regarding 47% of americans not paying income tax. this is a view he now disavows. >> sometimes you say something completely wrong. >> reporter: onl

their candidates faired just ahead. we're also going to talk with chris matthews who had very strong feelings about the debate. but we want to begin with chuck todd, chief white house correspondent in denver this morning. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. look, this may have been the most substantive debate in the television era. and mitt romney dealt with it as if his campaign depended on it while a subdued president obama let romney dictate the terms of the debate. not exactly the gift the president was looking for on his 20th wedding anniversary. >> and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> reporter: from the very beginning, mitt romney displayed a confident and commanding presence on stage, almost one-upping the president from the start. >> congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you can imagine here with me. >> that set the tone as romney seemed to control the tempo, sometimes ev

else. >> e.j., as joan just said, he doubled down. he was just on "hardball" and chris matthews gave him every opportunity to, you know, land on earth and he doubled down. let me show you what he said. >> jack, do you want to take back the charge? >> no, i don't want to take back one word in that tweet. >> so you would assert, as of now, 5:00 this afternoon, these chicago guys will do everything? >> i didn't say that they did. i said that they would do anything. >> okay. so first of all, e.j., you have been one of the esteemed journalists in this country. the unemployment figures has nothing to do with those that run the white house or in any way politically are connected with either party. i mean, is that right or wrong? >> no, that's totally right. and that's what's really important about this weird story. we really have obama der rangement syndrome going on on the far right and not just the far right. first of all, in 1984 and '88, good economic numbers really helped the republicans. you have democrats and liberals running around spinning conspiracy theories. for that matter, good

chris matthews on msnbc saying, where was obama tonight? >> right. i think that is storyline you will see a lot tomorrow. we're already planning that story for tomorrow's weather today. jonathan will have the third analysis piece will try to say mitt romney had a really good night tonight. by all accounts, what does that really mean? nine points behind in ohio. 10 points in virginia. how much can debate do to put a floor. i think it can do a lot to change the mood of whole campaign, donors, voters. one debate. one night. >> that is one of the big concerns i talked about earlier. look at "wall street journal" editorial page this morning often a very good indication where sort of the movement is in their assessment of things. both lead editorial and editorial by fred barnes who wrote a piece for them usually works for "weekly standard", both were very critical how this campaign messages and how they run ads. i think the big question will be can they take this moment, take whatever, whatever magic they had and can they bottle it up and then transplant it into advertising into stump
